I have my parents' old Moscow Mule copper mug. I checked the bottom of the mug and it says "cock 'n bull"! I'm guessing my folks tried the drink when they took a bus trip out to CA in the 1940s. I've had the mug sitting on the desk, stuffed with little trinkets we picked up from long-ago geocaching treks. I think it's time I cleaned the mug out and tried that drink!

You have lots of the liquid part for asian marinade for beef. All you need is the soy sauce, garlic, lime juice, salt and pepper. Mix it together, freeze it in cubes for future Asian meal marinade.

What a wonderful bunch of ideas! I especially like the Dark Stormy! A Facebook friend who is a chocolatier reminded me that it's basically ginger simple syrup. That helped wake up the muse. She also posted this: http://drinks.seriouseats.com/2013/1...n-liqueur.html

I don't have a SodaStream, but mixing it with lemonade sounds good. I don't do well with carbonated beverages, but DH loves ginger ale. He might like it with some bubbly water.

Sure looks like it won't go to waste GG! I think you'll need more.

So GG, I think we all need to know what led to this. What are you going to do with all that beautiful candied ginger? Recipe please?

Candied ginger costs a fortune. For a couple dollars worth of fresh ginger and sugar, I have enough for this recipe (3 mini loaves) plus a quart of ginger simple syrup. Good deal, eh?

I'll have to make that for Rob, he's such a ginger fanatic.

Trader Joe's usually has a good price on candied ginger, a pouch full for a few bucks. The stuff in the grocery store is ridiculously priced!
